Survey Says....

August 19th, 2008
By

All this talk about gas, transit and back to school traffic (starts next week so watch out!) made me ponder a bit.  I wanted to hold an informal WWD! survey... a game of sorts (for you MLC & O&E fanatics). I'll tally up the numbers hopefully at the end of the night and adjust accordingly for any later posts.

What I wanted to find out is this (and I'm sure it'll morph into some other added info):

  • Numbah of licensed drivers in da house
  • Numbah of vehicles owned (running and using - not da kine junkalunka kine sitting in da yard)
  • Wat kine you get? Car, truck, SUV?
  • If you have multiple vehicles, is more than one out on da road? (Eh, no cast judgement if all five on da road ok? Maybe they work different kine places or gotta do something aftah das why.)
  • How much (total) do you spend on gas weekly?

If you like add any oddah info, no shame geev' um.

And if you tink too personal, no need answer.

The City and County has done a current and projected traffic study (useless fact tidbit: dat's da two black tubes stretching across da road and everytime a car runs ovah it, da tally is added to da clicker in a box on da side in case you evah wondered wat da rubbah thing on da road was) and it doesn't look good but if gas prices get worse, who knows if it'll hold true.

Before we begin, I recall on a newscast a day or two ago dat recent car owners are now spending mo' on gas den their monthly car payments....

Wassap Wit Dat!

Survey says....

2 licensed drivers
3 vehicles: car, truck, motorcycle
Motorcycle to/from work. Car sometimes if Da Wife schedule changes or if rain. Truck on weekends.
Gas: Car - about $50
Truck - about $75
Motorcycle - about $20

 

DA PIDGIN WORD OF DA DAY! -
(as quoted from Da Kine Dictionary & Pidgin To Da Max… wit a Braddah Lance twist)

JUNKALUNKAH
(junk ah LUNK ah)

Haole Translation: Old, beat up vehicle - not in very good condition

Usual characteristics: broken something (window, door, etc), banged up, dented body or bumper, rust... but she still run and that's all that matters.

Use: describing one ole' buss' up car

Sentence: “Brah, cause you no take kea yo' car, came au' junkalunkah li'dat.”

Sentence: “Ho, shame you going take yo' date in your junkalunkah-mobile.”

    Gas bill maybe $35-40/week, carpooling now 4x week and wife retired and stay home babysit grandkid.

    I think make difference on gas mileage by your driving style...less gas if you easy on the brakes, judge on when you need to stop so slow down and cruise to a stop, then slow easy acceleration. Roll down window when driving below 45 mph like in town and residential and use AC when over driving over 45 mph, like on freeway.

    gotta drive to three different jobs plus school. but all are in town and one job is on-campus so that helps. hemajang is right, but sometimes hard when i got the 6-speed stick and one wide-open freeway on-ramp. :) hehe.

    hemajang: no forget to keep tires properly inflated and try not to load down the car with too many (unnecessary) junks.

    suv (wife) - errands (shopping, eating, shopping - she's a flight attendant)
    truck - $70 per week
    suv - $40 per week (estimate)


  21. Goodbeer:

    In da house:
    5 drivers
    5 cars + 1 truck
    Weekdays get only two or three cars on da road, but next week going change when UH starts; some days two or three on da road, some days four or five on da road depends on who's turn fo drive between the kids and their friends.

    Gas? About five million dollars a week.

    Next month, insurance is due again so either my bussup truck or my bussup car will be going away. Probably the bussup car. I can only afford enough wire and duct tape to keep one tied together. That'll leave us with five vehicles and a weekly gas bill of six million dollars because the price of gas going up some more.

  23. JindoMaster808:

    2 licensed drivers
    2 vehicles owned (not junkalunka)
    Both are cars
    Both out on road on weekdays, One on road weekends
    $30/wk for one, $40/wk for the other


  24. Coconut Willy:

    2 drivers
    2 vehicles (4 cyl, and a 6 cyl SUV)
    $25/$35 a week
    Both cars on the road during the week. Usually one on weekends.


  25. opso:

    1 drivah (da stats are in da mail. ;) )
    1 cah

    average comes to about $15/week.
    i live, work & mostly play in town. and it's only a 5 min. drive to work. :P


  26. munch:

    Yup, jus’ doing quick math in my head… monthly gas looks like a big chunk of your paycheck.

    yeah pretty soon i going withdraw from my 401K to fill up gas :cry:

    ehhh BL your PWODD been right on! see how good da language is?! you can find a word to fit any subject :-D
    i remember my mom used to have a junkalunkah car and i used to hope and pray that they weren't in that car when they came to pick me up from school. but that junkalunkah wasn't as bad as my friend's mom...hers was junkalunkah AND ugly color! haha


  27. 9th Island Girl:

    2 drivers
    2 cars
    Average for mine about $20/week
    Who knows what my husband's is because it's a company car


  28. King Katonk:

    2 Licensed Drivers
    3 Vehicles (all Toyotas – 1997 Previa van, 2004 Camry & 2005 Sequoia)
    The wife drives the Camry and I drive the van (affectionately known as the “golden egg.”) The funny thing about our SUV is that we only use it for trips; that’s why my kids call it the “Vacation Car.”

    Since both us are in real estate we drive all over L.A. so our gas bill is well over $150 a week. It’s a good thing we can write some of this off as a business expense.

    Speaking of the van, I never thought in a million years I would be driving one. Gone are the days “rolling” in a sports car. And believe me; no one takes you seriously when you are behind the wheel of a minivan.

    This is a very humbling experience.


  29. Daniel:

    2 drivers
    2 vehicles (one Corolla, one CR-V)
    About $80 every other week
    Both cars are out on weekdays, but the Corolla does more driving, since it's better on the gas. On weekends it's the Corolla; the CR-V is just fo' dump rubbish. I guess lucky we live Hilo, I just coast 'um down Kaumana Drive every morning - no need push da gas!


  30. bamboohouse808:

    2 drivers
    1 car, 1 SUV
    My SUV goes work everyday. Wifey's car goes work 3 times a week and she carpool wit me the other 2 days. Mostly the SUV on weekends.
    SUV about $45/week gas
    Car about $30/week on gas

    I ain't looking forward to Monday's traffic. :| We need that UH West Oahu to be built already and get some UH students driving that way instead of toward town.


  31. BananaFish:

    2 drivers
    2 vehicles - Small SUV, Sports wagon, Truck (wife's work vehicle)
    I take the SUV to work, and the wife takes the truck, but her company pays for gas! Whoo-hoo! :D
    I dunno what the damage is for her work vehicle, but I send a bout $20 a week for my car. The other car, maybe $3 a week? We hardly use it right now. Sometimes I take dat car to work, since it's "sportier" and just to give um some exercise. ;) Plus it uses less gas.


  32. hanapaa:

    1 drivah
    1 cah (replaced junkalunka dis yea)
    1 25' Jackpot (lil bit junkalunka but no go out fishing anyways cuz no can afford gas & no can go bottom fishing)
    Gas fo cah stay around $20 (live, work and play mostly in town)


  33. M:

    Check your tires for correct air pressure. The tire pressure should be on a label on the left front door post. Have your wheel alignment checked. Beside getting more miledge out of your tires, you will have less rolling resistance. Change your oil every 3,000 mi. and use the recommended grade oil, your enigne will run more efficently.


  34. Braddah Lance:

    Wow! Go surf during lunch come back and BAM! Get choke replies - Cheee-hooo! Wat you guys bored today? :grin:

    Yup das a biggie! Check 'em wen cold too. No drive around and den stop at da gas station, da air expand so you get "false" reading.

    Mahalos fo' da tips M!

    Anoddah useless fact: You lose about one psi or mo' (depends on conditions) every month so if you no check 'em weekly, at least do 'em once a month.


  35. Scott:

    Yeah, Monday moring is gonna suck.

    Hey M, you're my neighbor....do you get on the H1 in the morning? What's your drive like as you exit our lovely Palolo Valley?

    I enter H1 on the 11th street onramp. I get a sick feeling when I turn left onto Waialae from 10th and see the whole line of cars near that basketball court, JUST waiting to get on the freeway, which is a parking lot. One morning last year, I just turned around and went back home and called in sick. Played golf at Turtle Bay that day, had 4 birdies!


  36. Ocean Lover (Garans I screw dis up):

    2 licensed drivers
    2 cars (one weekend use....our "junkalunk")
    gas/week ~$30

    Our "junkalunk" is 13 years old with 109K miles......good car (Honda Accord) yet I keep thinking bout "time to get a new one"....but with gas so expensive and the car great running (I change oil every 3,500 miles religiously) the SENTIMENTAL FACTOR kicks in.

    OL


  37. hanapaa:

    Anytime you need one deck hand, let me know! I’ll work fo’ play. Fo’ reals! But I no clean guts.

    Cheee! Wat kine bottomfishing you do? Gotta clean bout 100 pounds of bait and den make palu from the guts and bones. Wat, gotta put bait fo you too? Ahhhh! Maybe you one trolla! Lessee, 150 gallons at $4.53 is $679.50. Know da secret spot stay get choke ahi? Lessee again, maybe auction price fo ahi stay $2/pound den need 339.75 #s dressed. Can catch at least 3 150 pounders or wat? No can!! Mo betta I go buy for you from Tamashiro's. No mo fun but no puka da wallet !


  38. M:

    Scott, I use the 11th ave on ramp to get on the H1 too but I leave my house around 5:30 in the morning so I have no problem. How about when you leaving the valley during the early evenings and you are turning left onto Waialae from 10th. The cars are backed up into the valley because only about 2 cars can make the light. There's so much cars coming into the valley.


  39. Scott:

    Yeah M, also when you're at that light, heading up 10th ave, do you see the look on some the guys faces who are first to make that left onto Waialae? They want to punch it and turn before you and the others start up 10th. One time I saw one guy do that and almost kill and old man in the crosswalk, scared me so bad. Or you got the occasional doofus wanting to turn left into Tamura's from 10th ave. and holding up everybody on both streets. Tamura's parking lot is a scene all too itself sometimes!

  42. anklebiters:

    2 licensed driver
    2 cars - vette me, VW Golf daughter
    Gas - $45 me, don't know about daughter, probably same since she drives more miles per week.

    24 miles round trip to work, all city streets, speed limit 35-45mph - 20mpg, highway - 33mpg. I have to chuckle when I see dealers touting 30+ mpg highway on their econo boxes on TV :-)

    I don't change oil at 3K, that is no longer a 'must do'. Oil technology has come forward greatly since the days that 3K change were the norm and now there is synthetic. I use synthetic and changing it every 3K with filter, is an unnecessary expense, unless you are really into rush hour traffic, short trips, or drive in a dusty environment. If you only drive it on sunny weekends, going by the months would be a better alternative....3K may take you a year or two. I let my onboard oil life monitor dictate my changes. GM spent a lot on RD into coming up with the logic....why not take advantage of it. The system itself uses an algorithm that tracks engine revolutions and temperature and predicts oil life based on these parameters and driver use. I usually make it almost 6K before the 'Oil Life 3% Left' message is displayed. If I really wanted to be anal about it, I can just change the filter at 3K, then top it off and do a oil/filter change at 6K. I have friends who insist on 3K changes and thinks it a sacrilege if they hear otherwise. To each their own...YMMV.

  43. Kelli:

    I'm so late posting this... I'll just do this for myself since I live with relatives.

    1 vehicle owned
    1 Toyota Yaris
    Hee hee... I don't even fill up gas once a week. More like every other week. I only drive around town and my car is VERY fuel efficient. I couldn't afford a Prius — the Yaris was the next best thing. According to Toyota's Web site: 29 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway


  44. M:

    Scott, they need a green left turn arrow at that light. When I'm waiting at that light and someone wants to turn left into Tamura's and so happen to be next to me, I yell no left turn!

    Is dat on your 'vette? Fo' real? I thought you guys get like 8 miles a gallon?

    I don’t change oil at 3K, that is no longer a ‘must do’. Oil technology has come forward greatly since the days that 3K change were the norm and now there is synthetic.

    Good thing we no mo' any monkey wrenches (I think) cause dat synthetic debate always opens up a can of worms. iykwim

    I agree. When the gas price goes up on the mainland, Hawaii's gas prices IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS. Then when it goes down they give this lame excuse that "we selling the HIGHER PRICED GAS STILL IN OUR TANKS".

    What? They tink we STOOPID or what?

    They know they can take advantage of us, and we're used to shrugging our shoulders and saying "it's the price of paradise". Oh, I noticed the old Local Motion store on Kalakaua is now going to be an Ing. financial branch. Isn't that symbolic of Oahu currently? Well, somebody's gotta fund the huge mortgages of all the people occupying the news condos in Waikiki and Kaka'ako, if they ain't just paying cash to move here.
